I received an adtext yesterday about Globe's Emergency Text Service.
Globe is testing a service that will allow prepaid cellphone Globe subscribers who have used up all their load to still be able to text/send messages to Globe/TM subscribers. And they are calling it Globe Emergency Text Service.
With this service, prepaid subscribers who have zero balance will still be able to text 3 times, although to Globe/TM subscribers only. That can be a way to ask family or friends to send you some load or just send an important message. Or in the case of loadxtreme technopreneurs (dealers)/ technousers (retailers) that may be enough to reload their own respective cellphones.
It is borrowing prepaid credits from Globe. Once the subscriber's reload, he/she will be charged Php 4.00.
The text I received also states that this emergency text service from Globe is for market test only. But in case you a Globe subscriber who are out of prepaid credits right now, you might want to check out this text service.
Just text GTSOS to 3733.
It is nice but Globe should have allowed this service for subscribers to send the 3 texts to ALL networks. Also, the deducting of 4 pesos when you reload should have notifications.
It would be sad if this Globe Emergency Text Service will be the recurrence of "nakaw load".
